Two questions The pump nozzle needle (#28 on the parts diagram) does in basically just drop in with nothing on top of it? How much difference does the needle make? (hopefully some mind range smoothing)
Just my two cents on the purpose of the #28 needle in the tube leading to the accelerator pump discharge nozzle. I believe it is there to reduce the volume inside this tube. The discharge hole at the bottom of the tube is very small and would be very difficult to have manufactured a hole this small the length of the tube and impossible to clean if it became gummed or plugged. The reduced diameter at bottom of the needle is there as to not impede flow at discharge hole, the top reduced diameter is so it can not be installed upside down. The only driveability function would be if under certain scenarios such as long highway speed riding the tube maybe drawn empty from the constant high air flow then some of the pump capacity would be needed to refill the tube before it could discharge fuel to the engine during the next throttle opening. I think that under most riding situations it would be impossible to tell if the needle was installed or not. Of course this is just my opinion as I can't confirm any of this with the engineer that designed it. As for the midrange lean stumble that most of these carbs. seem to develop even after being cleaned and proper cable adjustment, I am still working on that and may know something soon. As for carb. kits all of the parts are out there, and with a couple of trips around the planet can be gathered. Maybe it would be worth while to assemble all of these into kits.

Good explanation Brian , The needle in tube reduces the tube size and therefore increases the pressure of fuel pumped from the diaphragm. With out needle the spray out of the single hole/jet down the throat of carb would not be good. On a similar note , if the float bowl gasket has not a good supple tight seal the fuel can get pumped through the gasket face into air passages or out side carb body that is usually visible and a good telltale sign of failure without removing. Also if the gasket has gone hard and distorted that sits above the needle can prevent the flow between the gap from the oneway jet to the needle jet . I have successfully replaced several of the needle jet. As mentioned before on this site , the Jet is not meant to be a replacement part and is quite often chewed up when owners try and remove it .
